We all have Denise Richards to thank for Two and a Half Men!

In a brand new episode of Just B with Bethenny Frankel on Tuesday, the actress claimed she was the one who satisfied then-husband Charlie Sheen to do the comedy collection, which grew to become a MASSIVE success! And, as it could end up, this one little determination was a blessing AND a curse to her household!

Recalling the pivotal second wherein Charlie was deciding between two initiatives within the early 2000s, she mentioned:

“He got Two and a Half Men while I was pregnant [with Sami, their first daughter]. He was nervous about starting a new TV show after Spin City got canceled. By the way, I read the script for [Two and a Half Men] and said, ‘You have to do this show.’”

While the Anger Management actor was leaning towards a distinct collection on the time, Denise was dead-set on Two and a Half Men:

“He was going to do a different show. And I read the script for [Two and a Half Men] and I go, ‘You’re crazy for not doing this.’”

Ultimately, Hot Shots alum listened to his spouse and joined the CBS collection from 2003 to 2011. Eight years of any community sitcom cash goes to be good, however the success of Men was past anybody’s wildest goals. Charlie grew to become the best paid actor on TV for some time, making a reported $1.8 million PER EPISODE, and there have been a whole lot of episodes again then! It was an enormous font of funds — till he was fired for making a collection of controversial rants in regards to the present’s co-creator Chuck Lorre throughout his notorious public meltdown.

Looking again, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star now credit the present’s success for knocking Charlie off the straight and slender — and finally for destroying her marriage! Noting that her dad and mom “liked Charlie and were very supportive of us being married and getting married,” the Wild Things star mentioned:

“Like I said, he was very different than what the public saw when he spiraled after all that stuff …when he was fired [from Two and a Half Men].”

Explaining why the “wheels fell off” their relationship, she shared:

“I think because the success of Two and a Half Men and the money, I think that led to him getting back into not being sober.”


While she didn’t need to converse on her ex’s behalf, she added:

“All I know is he was no longer the person that I married and no longer sober.”

Denise finally filed for divorce in 2005 whereas she was six months pregnant with their second baby, Lola. The cut up went from 0 to 100 in lower than a business break:

“When I filed, basically [Charlie] went to work, I packed a suitcase and took our daughter [Sami], who is not even one, and went to the Beverly Hills Hotel. I went to file for divorce and then went to a fitting for a pilot I was doing.”

They would rapidly change into the discuss of the city, one thing that “shocked” her as a result of she didn’t anticipate the cut up to be “so public.” The actuality star recalled:

“We were on the covers of tabloids for a couple of years. It was insane. That was very difficult for me. …To have the mudslinging as well, I just wanted us to shut the f**k up and go through it. …He was on the hottest show ever and they wanted to protect him.”

The divorce was messy AF and he or she finally “spent a f**king fortune on legal fees.” Though she doesn’t know the precise figures, she may give us an concept:

“I spent millions. It’s a lot.”

One factor she didn’t go after, although? Charlie’s sitcom cash! She advised Bethenny she “didn’t go after half of the Two and a Half Men” fortune though she so deserved it, having talked him into it. Hitting again on the manner tabloids used to name her a “gold digger,” she argued:

“I was with him during all of that. … But by the way I could have, rightfully so, and I think I would have deserved every f**king penny with what I had to deal with. The money was the last thing we dealt with. It was more about the custody [of our daughters] and all of that stuff.”

These days, the dad and mom nonetheless don’t see eye-to-eye generally with regards to co-parenting their youngsters, akin to the choice to let 19-year-old Sami begin up an OnlyFans account. While Denise completely helps her daughter’s endeavors (partly as a result of she has her on account on the NSFW platform), she retains her distance, she claimed:

“I’ve never been on her page. Sometimes it’s weird for me to even go on my kids’ Instagram.”

That mentioned, she’s been criticized for suggesting she and her daughter collab, so she have to be considerably conscious of what the teenager’s doing on-line! Charlie, then again, was in opposition to the platform from the beginning. But Denise says he not less than was man sufficient to confess he was improper — when she began making her personal Two and a Half Men cash! LOLz! Denise defined:

“He changed his tune when she bought a Mercedes and moved into a house so maybe he was like, ‘maybe this ain’t so bad after all!’”

While the drama could by no means finish with these two, it’s positive attention-grabbing to know Denise had such a giant hand in sky-rocketing Charlie’s profession, although! Can you think about if he hadn’t mentioned sure to the present?? Things can be so totally different! Thoughts? Let us know (under)!
